Status Quo

Posted by Chris Lambert

The morning sun was lost behind afternoon clouds, and I don't see much changing the next few days.  We'll get some breaks of sun, but clouds win out most of the time.  The following talks about some rain and snow showers, but remember... MOST of the time is dry.

As a big ole storm to the NE of us continues to spin it's wheels, just enough instability rotates back into southern New England tonight and early tomorrow to trigger a few snow showers.  North and west of Boston, a few towns may pick up a dusting, but not much more than that.  In fact, any dusting of snow melts by late morning tomorrow as temps head their way up to the 40 degree mark.  A passing rain or snow shower is possible in the afternoon, but again, much of the day is dry.  About 30% of us pick up a rain or snow shower.  A few more snow showers drop another dusting of snow north of the city tomorrow evening. 

A passing rain or snow shower still possible Monday before completely dry weather prevails Tuesday.  At that point, we turn our eyes to the south for Wed and Thur.  A mid-Atlantic storm cranks up Wednesday and Thursday, but it remains to be seen how much of an impact we'll see.  I'd bet on lots of clouds, an occasional rain or snow shower, and a strong east to northeast wind both days.  Right now, the brunt of the storm looks to slide just south of us, but I wouldn't discount a farther north track just yet.  Certainly worth watching at this point.  At least we'll see an impact of high winds and rough seas along the coast.

50/50 Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

We're off to an iffy start to the weekend as nuisance rain and wet snow moves across the area.  While it's not a well organized area of low pressure, it develops right near us midday, and that'll be enough for a tricky forecast.  Light to moderate  rain/snow is on and off early this morning with a heavier burst of precipitation possible late morning, through mid afternoon in eastern MA (11:00AM-3:00PM).

Final Days

Posted by Pete Bouchard

That's the way to get it done! Fine finish to the workweek as sun dominated and winds behaved.

I submit that is the one - and perhaps only - reason these days have felt springlike in this extended thaw. If the winds were gusty on a day like today, the sun (albeit a little stronger these days) is really no help.

Great Mid-Winter Weather

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nice mid-winter weather? Here's how I envision it:

*Sunshine

*Mild temps (40 or higher)

*Little to no wind

That last bullet point (IMO) is probably the biggest when outside this time of year. After our morning fog lifts out of here all three of those criteria will be met this afternoon AND.....it's Friday. #Winning.

Colder Temperatures Cometh

Posted by Pete Bouchard

As far as blah days go, this was the blahest.

Fog blanketed the area as winds remained light and variable. We're still looking at some fog, but the thickest part of it should only be during the first half of the night. After that, gentle winds should "mix out" some of the heavily fogged in areas.
